KARACHI: Tufail Chemical Industries Ltd. has partnered with SAP to implement SAP's S/4 HANA as a part of the company's wider business transformation strategy.
During this digital transformation journey, Tufail Chemical expects to save between Rs150 million to Rs200 million annually in operational costs as a direct result of using SAP solutions. This saving will be derived from better spend controls, more effective inventory management, a more robust production control and plant maintenance process, and improved billing and cash collection.
Tufail Chemical and SAP implementation partner, Abacus, remotely implemented all the core modules of S/4 HANA within the allocated time, despite the hurdles faced by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Tufail Chemical was using a home grown system prior to opting for SAP's solutions. The company chose to work with SAP because of the company's capabilities and experience in the manufacturing and chemical industry.
Talking about the reason behind the shift to SAP S/4 HANA, Zubair Tufail CEO Tufail Chemical Industries Ltd said the main aim behind our strategy was to build a more lean and flexible organisation.
He said that the implementation of SAP S/4 HANA will provide Tufail Chemical with process standardisation, accurate and timely management reporting, increased financial controls and better insight into operational and commercial trends.
"We have been live for 2 months now and have already seen a marked improvement in our plant maintenance activities, where the SAP PM module has allowed our team to do better preventive maintenance and tracking of incidents, and in our sales order process, where a significant amount of manual work has been eliminated allowing for more timely invoicing and cash collection. In the long run we aim to add other more targeted solutions to maximize the overall value we can derive from SAP," Zubair added.
